With the recent opening of the deep-water provinces of the Salina Del Istmo basin in the southern Gulf of Mexico, and the availability of newly acquired wide-azimuth data, a challenging area was targeted for a pilot study to develop a deeper understanding of the geology in the Campeche deep-water region using a combination of geological and geophysical solutions, auxiliary data, and advanced technologies, including 3D basin modeling, gravity modeling, and structural restoration.
